Mahasamaya Sutta

Thanissaro Bhikkhu has talked about how his teacher got in the habit of reciting the Mahasamaya Sutta which recounts the names of the devas who came to visit the Lord Buddha on a certain occasion. His teacher related that the devas like to hear the sutta recited because they, like the rest of us unenlightened folk, always enjoy a good shout out. I’m at a point in my practice where I would like some help but have next to time time to get out and the idea of connecting with spiritually advanced beings who might be able to help is certainly enticing.

As such, I intend to add the Mahasamaya to my evening chanting and hope to petition the devas to aid me in the development of wisdom and compassion.
